YouTube star-turned-beauty guru Shane Dawson has released extensive footage from an attempted robbery that took place in October, which was teased in an episode of his 2019 series with Jeffree Star.

In the first episode of his documentary series “The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star,” Dawson and fiance Ryland Adams revealed they’d had to call law enforcement to their home due to the presence of unwanted intruders.

A short, dramatic clip of the break-in featured footage of Ryland holding a baseball bat, with Dawson showing a phone call to 911 — a disturbing incident that was expounded upon in his latest video uploaded to his new channel, “Shane Glossin.”

Under this new moniker, Dawson revealed the ordeal in its entirety, showcasing security camera footage that revealed the presence of a hooded stranger walking outside the house as Ryland spoke to police on the phone.

The camera then went dark, with sounds of persistent knocking sending Dawson into a panic as he whispered, “Oh my god,” in fear.

The spine-chilling moment was preceded by a voicemail from Jeffree Star, who expressed relief that Shane had recorded the incident on film as further proof of the invasion and advised him to amp up security on the property.

Dawson later explained the invaders’ motivation, claiming that they’d been trying to steal his “Conspiracy” makeup palette ahead of launch.

Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star released their highly successful “Conspiracy” makeup collaboration in late 2019.

“Jeffree said, ‘Listen, once we start doing this palette, people are gonna start coming for you,’” the YouTuber recalled. “I thought he meant like on Twitter, haters or something. He meant in real life, and they would try to come to my house and rob me, and find our makeup palette and steal it and f**king counterfeit it.”

The YouTuber later claimed that the would-be robber climbed over his fence and made their way into his home via the garage, prompting him to try and lock the door at the exact moment they tried to open it.

The break-in followed the notable robbery of Star’s warehouse in April, which resulted in the black market sale of his concealer line before it had been released to the public.

Thankfully, both Dawson and Ryland emerged from the terrifying ordeal unscathed — but the blood curdling footage acts as a chilling reminder of the consequences that internet stardom can bring.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
